Background/Info: “Parallel Worlds” is a teaser to the third full length (cf. “Patience”) from the German Rroyce trio.
Content: The title song is a cool electro-pop song driven by a hopping cadence and the charismatic vocals of their singer. The song is a fusion between classical electro-pop music and a refreshing touch on top. “Parallel Worlds” has been remixed by Solitary Experiments and Christoph Schauer (Cyto).
The EP also features 5 remixes of the new song “Too Little”. Remixes were accomplished by Endanger, Soni Code and Rotoskop (3 remixes).
+ + + : “Parallel Worlds” is a perfect title song for an EP and the best way to announce a new full length. It confirms the potential of Rroyce. The song doesn’t really innovate, but is based on a carrying lead, a cool chorus and great vocals. Solitary Experiments accomplished a punching remix. I also have to mention the “Dancer Mix” of “Too Little” by Rotoskop, which as the title indicates, is an alluring club version.
– – – : Rroyce hasn’t chosen the most familiar and famous artists to remix. That’s maybe a pity as all remixes can’t totally convince –although I can’t say they’re worse. It is also a pity the original version of “Too Little” isn’t featured at this EP.
Conclusion: I never have been a huge fan of EP’s filled with remixes, but the title song by Rroyce is a solid appetizer to the new full length.
Best songs: “Parallel Worlds”, “Too Little – Rotoskop Dancer Mix”, “Parallel Worlds – Solitary Experiments Remix”.
